What To Do After You Slip and Fall In A Grocery Store
After any slip, it is extremely important that you stay put and wait for assistance from a store employee. As help arrives, they will call medical emergency specialists to verify that your health is not at a serious risk.
If you have suffered broken bones or serious head trauma, you will be asked if you would like to be sent to the ER for treatment. That decision is completely up to you, but remember, you are covered under Stater Bros insurance policy so we recommend that you go for all treatment.
Make sure that you do not leave the scene of the accident without taking proper images and photos of what caused you to slip. If there was water on the floor with no caution-cones up, this would be a clear indicator that the grocery store did not do their due diligence to ensure a safe environment for their customers.
Make sure that an employee fills out and completes your accident report while you are present. Make sure that you leave a precise description of the story of the incident. In this report, verify all factors that lead to the fall such as poorly maintained floors, dirty floors, lack of caution cones near a slippery surface and anything else that may apply.
Retrieve as many witnesses as possible. Gather statements from these witnesses to ensure a strong case on your end. Collect all contact information on these individuals and let them know that you will be reaching out to them if you must appear in front of a judge while undergoing a personal injury lawsuit.
Have you been injured after a slip and fall accident while shopping at your local grocery store? While the majority of shoppers complete their visit at a local Stater Bros within minutes, there have been instances where low maintenance flooring results in a slippery area that can lead to injury.
